Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari inaugurates mobile COVID RT-PCR test laboratory in Nagpur

Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari today inaugurated a mobile Covid RT-PCR test laboratory in Nagpur. Operated by Spice Health and Nagpur Municipal Corporation, this lab has capacity to test 3 thousand samples per day and can give reports within 24 hours. He said that this facility will enable patients to diagnose the disease early.

The Minister, while expecting to lower the time interval for obtaining the test report, said that the lab should work to get the report within 12  hours. Since this report will be available  on mobile, there is no need to come in person here. Apart from Nagpur city, COVID samples from districts like Bhandara, Chandrapur and Gadchiroli in East Vidarbha will also be tested in this laboratory. In view of the shortage of oxygen in hospitals of Nagpur city, Gadkari informed that 200 Ventilators have arrived and soon 500 oxygen concentrators will also be provided, all of which will be distributed in rural Vidarbha. He expected that this move would ensure uninterrupted supply of medical oxygen in Nagpur.

The lab will test samples at a cost of Rs 425. A team of medical technicians is working in this mobile lab. The lab is available in the service of Nagpur’s citizens from today itself.
